E-peace Contests

Track four focuses on the development of contests and awards to stimulate awareness and interest in e-Peace issues among the youth. These contests are designed to build a dialogue amongst participants and a coherent regional and global youth community which will be fostered by subsequent contests, develop peacebased content to be used by students worldwide, and contribute in developing ties between youth regionally and globally.

The E- Peace Contest, which had its soft start at the International Youth Forum on 1-3 September 2007, is designed to build peace-related online content while fostering professional, technical and managerial skills. Youth will participate in an annual contest by preparing written or multimedia online content on topics such as:

  • Human rights,
  • Religious tolerance,
  • Social respect,
  • Cultural understanding and common history,
  • Peace building,
  • Socially-unifying sports.
The themes of the competition will focus on promoting mutual understanding, respect and harmony enabling social changes and healthier lives with peace as the underlying principle. The competition will:
  • Unite and empower youth from Egypt and other countries by publishing their essays online and empowering them to fully utilize their creative and technical skills. The best essays will be judged online by a jury of peers and will receive recognition which will be given during the Youth Camps gathering.
  • Build a dialogue amongst participants and a coherent regional and global youth community which will be fostered by subsequent contests.
  • Develop peace- based content to be used by students worldwide.
  • Contribute in developing ties between youth regionally and globally.
